COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT HUB
Why do we Exist?
Communities across the world face poverty, injustice and brokenness. Frequently efforts to help these communities are focused on “outside-in” relief and do not bring long term holistic transformation.
Our goal is to help God’s people engage with communities in ways that bring holistic transformation – physical, social, mental and spiritual. To see communities discovering their true identity in God and His intentions for them in everyday life.
The purpose of the Community Development Hub is to help Christians engage in Biblical Community Development.
We believe this is important because of communities across the world face poverty, injustice and brokenness. We know we are called to help but unfortunately, sometimes our efforts to help these communities are focused on “outside-in” relief and just make matters worse.
The CDHub aims to help people engage in Biblical Community Development through 3 primary activities. These are:
Promoting biblical principles of community development through sharing articles, resources and ideas. One of the projects the CDHub is involved in is truthandtransformation.com a website that will share articles and resources related to Biblical Community Development.
Providing training courses, seminars and consultancy on community development and other related topics.
Helping to connect like-minded people so they can work effectively together. Strengthening links between the classroom and the field. Helping to strengthen networks serving those in YWAM and beyond.
The CDHub works closely with the Community Development and Justice Centre, which is a global YWAM network focused on community development within the University of the Nations.
